Hab ihm locker 40 min Zeit gegeben. Das brauchte er auch. Intensive Nase, würzig, röstig und zugleich fruchtig. Vordergründig geschwefeltes und eine feine Menthol-Note. Eine Süße von reifer Papaya und Honig und gleich dahinter etwas staubiges, rauchiges von altem Holz und Tabak. Gefällt mir Am Gaumen auch wieder intensiv und lecker. Süß, salzig und bitter zu gleich. Menthol oder Minze habe ich auch hier und etwas metallisch wirkt er. Kurz kommt sich etwas angesengtes Plastik hinzu. Etwas Mandel am Ende. Menthol und etwas Holz sich im Abgang. Ein guter Caroni.

It’s a light weight for a Caroni issued by Velier (110 proof) and to me that means it is lacking a bit from what I hoped. Real herbal and vegetal notes on the nose and palate followed soon after by more typical tar and rubber elements. It’s a dry and savoury mouth and lacks the intensity and oiliness that I was looking for. Medium length finish and opens up a bit with time but lacks the wow factor that I and many others want with a Caroni
